What is McQuaig?

McQuaig has helped companies understand people better for over 40 years. It is based on the premise that people behave fairly consistently from one situation to another.

As people behave consistently, users of McQuaig create role benchmarks based on the requirements of the job. This increases the chances of someone performing well in the role because it feels natural to them. In turn, employees are happier and more fulfilled when they come to work.

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” – Confucius

McQuaig has a few components you may be asked to complete:

Ultimately McQuaig will be used in three areas:

  1. Ability: To assess if you are capable of doing the job
  2. Temperament: To assess how you will go about doing your job
  3. Character: To assess whether you have the learned behaviours necessary to use your ability and temperament in the right way.
